“For me, it’s all about the physicality of painting and connecting with my materials, tools and surfaces in different ways. I paint to capture precious moments - I suppose there is an element of performance when I work as the output is very raw, impulsive and intuitive”. - Marcus Aitken, 2020.
Marcus is a contemporary artist living and working in South London. Known for his gestural paintings, his work has been featured in various publications including Schön!
